The ELEMENT model was developed through joint studies in the
with Mr. Tomoya Nishimori of MR. BROTHERS CUT CLUB, one of the world’s leading stylists in the men’s sector.
It was important to Tomoya Nishimori-san to have a compact design with short blades for precise and efficient cutting. Three features in particular make this model stand out: the weight, the back and the front.
The scissors can be turned around during work and thus also used in the ‘reverse’ version.
The two long finger rests support the hairdresser in his work, as he can relax his little finger when using the front as well as the back.
Due to their compact design, the scissors can be turned quickly and do not interfere with the work process.

EXTRAMARISE® is a proprietary heat treatment ideally suited for haircutting scissors that was developed by MIZUTANI based on long years of accumulated data and experience. The same steel material can have totally different performance depending on the heat treatment used. Therefore, to maximize the special qualities of the rare metals (cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, etc.) we’ve added to our products to the greatest extent possible, and achieve the ideal metal for scissors, (*hardening, tempering, sub-zero processing) and other complete temperature management procedures are essential. To bring out the distinct characteristics of materials, and manufacture a blade with the ultimate strength required for haircutting scissors, we at MIZUTANI have implemented our own proprietary heat treatment using the ideal temperature for scissors: EXTRAMARISE® processing.
These metal ball bearings are small, high precision items produced by a Japanese manufacturer. With superior anti-rust properties compared to foreign-made products, they have a high level of durability. By drastically reducing friction around the screws, they not only ensure smooth opening and closing of the scissors, lessening burdens on the hands, but also protect the edge from damage, contributing to long cutting life.
Compact and easy to turn, this is a flat type driver for UFO screws. This screwdriver is included with all scissors with the mark shown.
